What Writers Are Saying About This Online Webinar: "As a writer I have always heard the term author platform thrown around, but before this webinar, I really didn't know what it meant. The #1 thing I am going to take away from Jane's talk is the fact that I don't have to be super technology savvy to build my website. Now I have the confidence to post my work on my own site for all to see." "I have never attended a webinar before hearing this one, but I have to say it was very informative. The speaker made it very easy to understand how to build a website and gave step-by-step examples of some websites too." —Corey Do you love this online webinar? Write a review!
